Soul Purpose Designs Creates Mind-Blowing Custom Shoes Inspired by Rock Guitars and Comic Heroes

Louis Blaut, the founder of custom apparel company Soul Purpose Designs (“Kicks with Character”), clearly puts a lot of love into his custom shoes.

His four new custom shoe designs, for example–“The Ax” (inspired by a Gibson guitar), “The Etheria” (inspired by ’80s superhero She-Ra), “The Mischief” (inspired by Disney’s Maleficent), and “The Prince” (inspired by Aladdin’s turban from Disney’s “Aladdin”)–are dedicated to his brother and three sisters.

(They must be one seriously cool, stylish family.)

But the love doesn’t stop there. As he explains: “Soul Purpose Designs was built on a love for the arts and a desire to give back to the arts community.”

Along that course, Soul Purpose Designs has pledged a portion of its profits to superb arts education organizations and has committed to manufacturing their products under fair trade certification guidelines.

While it’s not unusual for companies like this to give back to their community, the one-of-a-kind products coming out of Soul Purpose Designs are not only improving lives, they’re turning heads and dropping jaws.

And if you’re a shoe lover–especially someone who loves creativity and comic book/film culture–your jaw will quickly drop when you see their latest creations.

Four Custom Kicks That Will Make Shoe Lovers Drool

One thing that’s especially impressive about Soul Purpose Designs is their commitment to brainstorming concepts, as Louis explains: “We spent 365 days on 365 designs with a goal of creating unique wearable sneaker art inspired by Hip-Hop, pop culture, comic books, and cartoons of the 80’s, 90’s and beyond, as well as iconic objects like guitars, hot air balloons, and super cars.”

With such a deep appreciation for pop culture and aesthetic variety, it’s no wonder Soul Purpose came up with these unique shoe concepts:

1. The Ax

Soul Purpose’s founder, Louis Blaut, learned to play guitar on a Gibson six-string. It’s only fitting then that this shoe, appropriately named “The Ax,” is modeled after the look of that rock guitar. It has:

  • Whiskey leather upper with embossed teardrop
  • Elastic guitar strings
  • Leather and elastic strap with actual fret bars
  • A heel tab with real guitar tuning pegs that will, as their Kickstarter page says, “Keep your step in ‘tune.'”

The shoe is made in tribute to Louis’s brother Scott, which adds a nice heart-warming touch to the shoe’s backstory.

2. The Etheria

She-Ra, the glorious ’80s Princess of Power, is given the star treatment in this shoe with design features all centered around her awesomeness (and in tribute to her famous tiara):

  • A gold molded leather heal tab
  • Royal blue lining
  • A gold leather and elastic strap
  • A ruby jewel

(Louis dedicated this shoe to his oldest sister Josephine.)

3. The Mischief

Maleficent, thanks in part to Angelina Jolie’s semi-recent live-action incarnation of the classic Disney villain, has become prominent in recent pop culture. “The Mischief” promises to add even more intrigue to the legend of Disney’s favorite witch:

  • Maleficent-shaded plush green suede
  • Red suede and lining
  • Smooth black leather with 3M piping for flash

(Louis dedicated this shoe to his middle sister Samantha.)

4. The Prince

Soul Purpose even delves into some serious ’90s nostalgia with “The Prince.” This shoe, if you can believe it, draws its design features from the turban worn by Aladdin in Disney’s ’90s classic “Aladdin.”

And it works.

This “regal sneaker,” as the company calls it, has:

  • A vacuum formed satin heal tab
  • Gold basket weave
  • Royal blue suede
  • Jeweled accents for shine
  • A feather to keep it “fly”

If this doesn’t make you want to sing “A Whole New World,” then nothing will.

(Louis dedicated this shoe design to his youngest sister Toniann.)

Soul Purpose Designs: Hip-Hop Apparel With a Positive Twist

Soul Purpose also has some unique accompanying apparel, including styles inspired by common Hip-Hop vernacular infused with positive messages.

With a clever use of acronyms, their H.Y.P.E. style is a great example. From their Kickstarter page:

H.Y.P.E. – Help Your People Excel shirts are inspired by the Dougie Fresh – the ultimate HypeMan. Like the others in the series, it was created using Hip-Hop culture’s tradition of using Acronyms as word play with a custom graffiti style font. #FindYourSoulPurpose no matter what stands in your way. Made with 100% cotton triple stitched for durability and comfort.

One-of-a-Kind Fashion for Good Causes

What makes Soul Purpose feel authentic and made with love, however, is its diligent commitment to the arts and to giving back to the community. In fact, 15% of all profits will go to support arts education through:

All three organizations are doing exceptional work. Materials for the Arts, for example, are doing this amazing mission in New York City:

[Materials for the Arts] collects a wide variety of reusable materials from businesses and individuals and make them available for free to nonprofits and civic organizations with arts programming and public schools. By providing a way for people to donate their unneeded supplies to thousands of creative and educational activities across the five boroughs, MFTA diverts over 1 million pounds of materials from the landfill each year.

Soul Purpose’s Kickstarter Campaign: Grab Your Own Pair of Custom Shoes

If you’re eager to try on a pair of Soul Purpose sneakers, you can join their Kickstarter campaign. (And you better do it fast as it ends in two weeks, Saturday, April 8.) After the campaign ends and the development and production stages are completed, incentives and shoes will be delivered beginning September 2017.

The incentives of their campaign range from one-of-a-kind logo sticker packs to shoes custom-made for you. At the next to highest level of backing, Soul Purpose will actually make a custom version of a shoe design just for you that will never be made available to the public.

Of course, at the highest level–the top incentive–you can actually fly out to NYC, meet Louis the founder of Soul Purpose, collaborate with him on a new shoe design, and receive a custom pair made just for you. At that point, your shoes will be so rare that you might be tempted to put them in a display case instead of wearing them.

If my enthusiasm is boiling over too much in this article, I won’t apologize for that because, frankly, companies (and sneakers) like Soul Purpose don’t come around every day. When they do, it’s worth trying them on–especially if they happen to be shoes inspired by a rock guitar.

Hate Laughter Tracks? This Kickstarter Device Could be for You

A decade or two ago, almost all TV comedy shows had a canned laughter track. This was, in some cases, due to the fact they were filmed in front of a live audience, but it also seemed to be telling audiences when to laugh. A new Kickstarter project thinks comedy should work differently.

The Kill the Cann ‘Laugh Track Suppression Device’ allows viewers to remove canned laughter from comedy shows, giving them the opportunity to avoid what some comedy fans see as unnecessary, and even perceive as an insult to their intelligence.

This is especially the case when laughter is not natural and was simply edited in later.

Kickstarter treatment not required (in this case)

Parks and Recreation shunned canned laughter. Source: Wikipedia

Users of the device could even experiment to see how classic shows are changed when bursts of laughter are replaced with the clattering, strategic silences preferred by innovative comedy shows like The OfficeParks and Recreation and Arrested Development.

A serious Kickstarter project

“For some of us, (canned laughter) is really annoying!” says the project’s Kickstarter page.

“For viewers, canned laughter can distort the dialogue, make it hard to hear clearly or understand, or simply insert laughs in places that you don’t think are funny.”

As a team with sound engineering expertise, the staff behind the project decided they could make a difference. The page explains that:

“As scientists with expertise in image and audio signal processing, as well as speech and vocalization analysis, we were all intrigued.”

“Undesirable canned laughter is definitely a “sound” issue – which is right up our alley. A survey of others revealed this was a common issue. Over 80% of our survey audience replied that laugh tracks on television shows annoyed them.”

“Armed with that insight, we decided to design a simple do-it-yourself solution that anyone could use with his/her own TV.”

How sitcom sound is put together

Their prototype, if backed, will turn into a device that uses an “advanced signal processing algorithm.”

It works in conjunction with current HDMI streaming devices such as DVR and Chromecast, with the HDMI cable of the DVR being connected to the device and then to a TV.

Then, says the team, you can, “just turn on the switch to suppress laughter in any show you are watching.”

While you’re enjoying the show with the sound no longer feeling like it’s the 1980s, the device is detecting available audio tracks of a multi-track television program to process, remove or reduce certain components, particularly audience sounds.

“This applies to any program which is supplied with several audio channels, whether provided by cable, DVD, Internet streaming, or otherwise,” says the Kickstarter page.

A prototype. Source: Kill the Cann

The device’s mechanics rely on a knowledge of how audio engineers assemble the sounds of a sitcom.

“Generally, music/special effects get a left and right channel, the left and right sides of the audience get left and right channels and one channel is dedicated to low-frequency sounds (bass),” says the Kickstarter page.

“Finally, the performers get one channel – which they share with the middle of the audience.

“In our processing, each of the audience tracks and the performance track get special attention.

TV is always evolving, and the rejection of a laughter track by makers of comedy has been a choice most have taken. There are still decades’ worth of sitcoms with laughter tracks, though, which some may wish to give a 21st-century makeover with an innovative device.

Snapmaker: The Versatile, All-Metal 3D Printer

Update 3/21/2017: The title has been changed from Snapmaker: The World’s First 3D Printer With an All-Metal Design to Snapmaker: The Versatile, All-Metal 3D Printer. Previous reports indicated it was the world’s first all metal 3-D printer, but it is in fact not.

3D printers are an incredible gadget: beloved by hobbyists, creatives and professional designers across the world. Unfortunately, they are also massive, surprisingly fragile and expensive — it’s not uncommon to come across printers that retail for $2000 or more. This makes them a risky investment for the typical small hobbyist.

Snapmaker has released a 3D printer on Kickstarter that looks set to change all that. The printing community loves it: as of the time of writing, it’s raised over $475,000! In this article, we’ll examine what the fuss is all about.

Durable metal design

Snapmaker metal

Snapmaker’s main selling point over its competitors is its all-metal design. The body of the linear module is made from aluminum alloys, which are extremely rigid and durable. These alloys have a dual advantage: they are 10x more stress-tolerant than the plastic that most 3D printers are made of, and they have a higher performance rate than sheet metal.

Additionally, Snapmaker has built the motion system using lead screws, which are more accurate and durable than the belts and pulleys used by competitors. In an industry in which customers care about reliability above anything else, this alone is a game-changer.

User-friendly for beginners and professionals alike

Have you ever tried to assemble a 3D printer from scratch? Unless you’re a seasoned pro, it’s normally a matter of hours, if not days! Snapmaker consists of 10 parts that can be assembled with no prior knowledge in 10 minutes.

Newbies can also be reassured that the software experience is very intuitive. Simply drag and drop a print file onto the software, or add other print files to create multiple items at a time.  The touchscreen is also easy to use, allowing hobbyists to go home and reload filament just by using their hand.

Snapmaker platform sticker

Users with more experience will notice that some familiar problems with previous 3D printers have been solved. Prying your print from the printing bed used to be a challenge, and the temperatures used to pose a health risk to kids. Snapmaker has avoided this issue by including a reusable platform sticker with the product, which performs better than the traditional blue painter’s tape and glue sticks.

Snapmaker levelling

Unlike with other printers, you also won’t need to constantly check on the Snapmaker to ensure that the print bed is level. Simply offset the Z-axis with a piece of paper before you get started, and then you can focus on the printing itself.

Versatile and affordable

Snapmaker engraving

But the Snapmaker is not just a 3D printer: it comes with a laser engraver and a CNC machine as well! The engraver means that you can engrave images and logos onto wallets, coasters, iPad cases, jeans and anything else that you want to customize.

This is an incredibly powerful tool — both for the professional logo designer and for the teenage daughter who wants a unique-looking wallet. The CNC machine allows makers to carve on wood, PCB or acrylic at 2,000 – 7,000 RPM simply by changing the printer head.

The creative power that the Snapmaker gives its users used to require the purchase of three separate machines, each costing $500 or more. Instead, you can get 3D printing, engraving and CNC functionality in one machine — for a Kickstarter pledge that starts at only $199.

Snapmaker modules

According to their Kickstarter page, Snapmaker has made their product so affordable through an innovation to the mold design process. The most expensive part of the above machines is the linear module (pictured above), and each one would have historically required its own module. Snapmaker has designed all three modules to be identical for each machine, cutting manufacturing costs and allowing them to produce modules at a higher volume. 

Who is behind Snapmaker?

Snapmaker is being built by a tech startup of the same name based in Shenzhen & Walnut, CA. Most of their team of eight are engineers, with a background in aviation, robotics and, of course, 3D printing. Their mission as a company is to build products that allow normal people to enjoy innovative technologies at an affordable price. This is the first printer that they have released, but I’m sure it won’t be the last.

To find out more about the Snapmaker 3D printer, head over to its Kickstarter page. If you want to back the product and become one of the first owners of this incredible printer, you have another 41 days before their campaign closes. $199 seems like an incredible investment for any creatives that are interested in 3D printing or tech gadgets.

Senstone: Revolutionary Technology to Record And Transcribe Your Speech on The Go

There is great wisdom in an ancient Chinese adage that says,“The faintest ink is more powerful than the strongest memory.” The human brain storage center, as described by Brice Kuhl in the Nature Neuroscience journal, is constantly selecting information that it deems relevant and highly probable to be used while suppressing information that is relevant but rarely put to use.

This is an adaptation of the brain memory centers to lessen the cognitive burden and minimize information mix up. In brief, that’s why the phrase, “Sorry, I forgot your birthday,” exists. It’s an important occasion but it comes up once a year!

There are incidences where apologies will undo the act of forgetfulness. However, for professionals whose decision-making is a matter of life and death, may not have the luxury to forget. Having been a victim of forgetfulness, Nazar Fedorchuk conceived the concept of a reminder button as a solution to his condition.

The rationale behind the button reminder christened Senstone, is to capture your thoughts as you verbally speak them out and archive them for later use. What’s neat, is that this device can convert your speech to text and organize your notes for you. As in the words of the brains behind Senstone,”It’s like having an AI to organize your notes.”

According to the inventors, a tap or a finger snap is all you need to set the Senstone in motion.

[Check it out on Kickstarter]

Product Outline

If you are an environmentalist champion, you will definitely love the packaging idea that is envisioned for Senstone. The packaging case and charging station is one in the same! It houses the Senstone and its accessory, as well as doubling up as its charging dock.

The Senstone promises to come with a USB cable for charging and interchangeable backs to suit your choice of wearing it. Be it as a clip, pendant, cuff, or wrist watch. The power of choice rests with you.

Taking the interchangeable backs out of the equation, the Senstone weighs approximately 0.39oz with a surface diameter of 1.16inches. To get a mental picture, its face size is almost similar in size to a US quarter.

Credit: Emily Ferron/New Atlas

Drawing inspiration from the brain waves (still hovering around memory!), the Senstone, for starters will be crafted out of chrome that is plated with brass with future releases featuring an anodized aluminum.

This will give a total of 4 different kinds of body frames to choose from. It’s a classy choice of material that gives Senstone that pseudo-gem stone look with the added bonus of whimsical L.E.D lights. A look that the creators are looking forward to patent. The beauty doesn’t stop there as the screen surface is scratch–proof.

The Senstone will boast up to 11 dictation languages in its initial production state. It promises to come with a battery that will sustain usage to a period of up to 4 days. A claim that we shall delve into later.

How Senstone Works

After close to a year, the first prototype of Senstone was launched on Kickstarter– a crowdfunding platform. Featuring the simple working principle of tapping the device or snapping your fingers in a quiet environment to start recording your voice notes.

It comes with an auto-transcript feature that automatically scripts your voice notes during the backing up process in the Cloud. The Final voice transcribed text will thereafter be displayed on your phone and you can further edit it.

Senstone Salient Attraction

The artificial intelligent aspect of the automation of the cloud software platform qualifies the words of Nazar that, “Senstone promises to be an Intelligent wearable voice recorder– the first of its kind.”

The Senstone in partnership with Cloud software promises to do a critical voice review with the added benefits transcribing voice memos, isolating keywords and generally sub-categorize your voice notes for easy archiving and retrieval.

Grey Areas that Need Polishing

Let’s delve into the battery charge duration. It is indicated to last for four days. This may be overambitious, but not impossible while recording as the battery energy capacity sits at 80mAh. On average the test unit records for 2.5 hours on a full charge.

Similar sentiments have been raised by curious eyes to which Senstone has promptly responded with an elaborate explanation. In a nutshell, their explanation sets the record straight and confirms the Senstone will last 3 hours on a full charge.

Limitation of the Review

Of the 11 dictation languages that Senstone claims to be compatible with, I am only versed with English. Having said that, this review is entirely based on the English version of the language.

How Good Is The End Product?

If you harbored any thoughts of transcribing your lecturer notes with Senstone, you will be in for a rude awakening. First a distance of 8 inches is advised for best results for speech to text transcription. You will also need to slow down your speech to minimize transcription errors. An attribute that renders it unfeasible in your day to day conversation use. The intended double microphone installation in the final product is anticipated to rectify this fault.

Future Looks Promising

The qualification of the team that is to turn the concept of Senstone into reality is beyond reproach. Backed by a well able body of professionals, Senstone is in the constant business of improving the prototype voice recorder.

[See it on Kickstarter]

The focus is being placed on the expansion of the Artificial Intelligence. Automatic punctuation, environmental awareness and incorporating other third party software is in the pipeline.

Senstone crowdsourcing was launched in early February at Kickstarter aiming to raise $50,000. Senstone really struck a chord with the masses as they have already raised an impressive $213,000 on Kickstarter!

It pays handsomely to be a benefactor for this program. Visit the campaign web page and get to learn more about the benefits before placing your pledge. You have only 9 days to be part of the Senstone story to be flagged off with the first shipment of the first product mid this year.

How failed kickstarter projects fooled their investors

They offer promises of tomorrow’s technology today. So impressive is the blueprint (at least to the unsuspecting eye) of the soon to be launched gadget, that you go ahead and empty your wallet for one of the future!

A total act of leap of faith into uncharted technology waters by benefactors to get a glimpse of the device once it rolls out. Others have reaped rewards for their investment while others have ended up burning their fingers.

Kickstarter, as the name suggest, is an online crowd funding site that gives budding ventures the much needed financial muscles to turn their dream into a reality. All factors held constant such projects should come to fruition.

However, more often than not, many projects have come short of the initial promise leaving backers with a bad taste in the mouth and an empty pocket as fruits of their investment. “No more woof” and “The Lily Drone” are some of the well-documented Kickstarter projects that failed in a spectacular fashion.

Failed Kickstarter Projects: The Tale of “No More Woof”

Conceived by Scandinavian engineers in 2013, the invention to be sounded brilliant. The engineers had the vision to tap into the electric impulses generated by the dog’s brain and transcribe the impulses into a language that you and I could comprehend.

From this invention, you could tell if your dog was tired or in cloud 9! As fascinating as it sounds, the wearable gadget never lived to see the light of day and has made it to our list of failed kickstarter projects.

The writing on the wall

The writing was on the wall. It was destined to have a false start. From the demonstration videos that failed to actualize the concept to a poor communication channel between the benefactors and  The Nordic Society for Invention and Discovery (the inventors) all were tell-tale signs of an ambitious project that won’t materialize.

It all come crumbling down last week after years of false promises punctuated with deafening silence. Refunds were offered and the site pulled down.

Why did it fail? According to Dr. Bruce Luber, a specialist of Brain Stimulation and Therapeutic Modulation, the entire project was over simplified. He waters down the explanations advanced by the NSID sighting challenges of getting a perfect fit head gear as the biggest obstacle to the “no more woof” project.

He authoritatively states that the current technology doesn’t allow scientist to retrieve hunger signals in the brains using electroencephalogram application. A feature that reigned supreme in the promotional video! In short, the headset was a farce.

The Lily Drone botched flight

The botched flight of the hyped Lily Drone follows a familiar script to some of the failed Kickstarter drone projects. A case in point is the 3.5 million dollars backed autonomous drone: zano.

The story begins with a fascinating promotional video demonstrating an automated drone that would follow you wherever you go (which later prove to be a fabricated video).With the euphoria generated, consumer are funding and making pre-orders to a non–existing technology to the tune of $34 million in the case of lily drone!

The launch dates start to mutate. Deadlines are not met. Then comes the bombshell of winding up! With a snap of your fingers, your money is washed down the drain.

A fraud indeed

For Lily Drone, refunds have been pledged. Only time will tell if backers will get their refunds. Currently, the Lily Drone developers have fraud case contend with in San Francisco. The case is hinged on the misleading and false information generated by the promotional video on the capabilities of the drone.

Though the aforementioned stories paint a gloomy picture of Kickstarter projects, it’s worth noting that numerous other projects have gained a foothold thanks to crowdfunding.

And in the words of CJ Cornell, a scholar crowdfunding and entrepreneurship, backers ought to embrace crowdfunding as an investment rather than a ‘pretail’ (buying products at conception stage.)

New Ecomo water bottle will test then clean your water

We’re constantly losing water from our bodies, so we need to constantly refill it. The health authorities commonly recommend eight 8-ounce glasses, which equals about 2 liters, or half a gallon. For most, that is a lot of water to think about in a day.

For some countries with continental or even a desert climate, consuming such an amount of pure drinking water is quite an important resource. Even in countries where the drinking water supply is not an issue due to easy access to natural or commercial sources, the quantity of pure water decreases dangerously.

That’s why the Ecomo water bottle needs to be in every hand.

Portable water filtration: New gadget of today

A portable water filtering device could be the best solution for these instances. We are successfully using water filters at our homes but what if there was a device that makes them more personal and puts the water directly in a bottle?

It could decrease harmful plastic bottle usage, therefore making this device more eco-friendly and body friendly as commercial plastic bottles often leach harmful substances.

This is a great solution for people who care about the planet and personal health. Such a brilliant idea is booming on Kickstarter right now with a name Ecomo Water Bottle. The project has raised $500K on a $50,000 goal and are now delivering.

This concept seems to be special because among other portable water filters it is not only very functional, but also has a great design.

https://youtu.be/fXWuCtKbKpE

How the Ecomo Water Bottle works

First of all, users are able to fill it anywhere. You can use the water from a water fountain or from a stream for example. Then, if you want to test the water, just shake it up and the filtration system will examine the purity of the water and rates it with a simple summary: “Bad”, “Moderate” or “Great.”

If the user is not satisfied with the quality of the water he wants to drink, he could easily filtrate it with just a twist on the bottom of the bottle. Yes, the algorithm seems to be very simple and users could go a little bit deeper to track daily hydration goals with a removable wristband, which synchronize with a special app.

The wristband helps users to check hydration history, customize daily goals and receive hydration alerts.

Filtrating contaminates

Ecomo Water Bottle users can be confident in knowing that they are drinking pure water because of the 3-in-1 filtration system that removes most contaminants by using:

1. Activated Carbon Fiber to remove chlorine, pharmaceuticals, pesticides and petroleum

2. Ion Exchange Fiber to remove most heavy metals, including chromium, lead, mercury, copper and cadmium

3. Nanofiber Membrane to remove effectively up to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses.

ecomo

The filter is easily to replace and users are notified by the lights on the bottom of the bottle when its time.The battery is really long lasting – one hour of charge equals one week of use.

So, this smart bottle is ready to be used here and now while solving a lot of our water consumption daily problems. This effective concept could be very popular in the nearest future and may become one of our irreplaceable gadgets.

 

New charger powered by your movement

Yes, it is true! The future predicted by blockbuster movie “Matrix” is coming without an Apocalypse.

Humanity of the XXI century needs constant and transportable personal energy sources. Multitudes of our everyday gadgets have high energy consumption, so we need to recharge them in order to stay mobile in our modern world. For this reason, the age of smart personal gadgets became the age of transportable energy sources as well. Transportable chargers were not effective enough because they were also dependent on constant energy sources. Solar energy recharge solutions give us more mobility but not full independence because the sun shines mostly less then 14 hours per day.

But, now one of the best solutions seems to be found!
A group of enthusiasts with a technical background have presented on Kickstarter the ‘HandEnergy’ charger which is basically a charger powered by your movement. Essentially, it transforms energy from our bodies into electricity and then stores it. You will be able to charge your smartphone, tablet and gadgets anytime and anywhere!

handenergy-portada-e1480496181689

How does the HandEnergy work?

The generator works with a person’s wrist movement. You just need to turn it on and release the starter ring. It will transmit an impulse to the rotor where it will then rotate the HandEnergy generator with your wrist movement. Of course, energy could not be produced in static and you will need to put a little effort on rotation with an average speed of 5000 RPM (about 0.536 Horsepower). The magnetic rotor transmits mechanical power to the stator and produces an electric current, charging the built-in batteries. With this stored energy you will be able to charge via USB Output 5V 1A; your smartphone, action camera, tablet, smartwatch, flashlight, tracker, e-book or speakers.

The charger, developed by Be.energy, is very compact and looks like an apple, or PokeBall, for the Pokémon fans out there know what I mean. This is the most efficient electricity generator adapted to our hands.

Moreover, it is eco-friendly and produces completely clean energy. You can also train your hands with wrist movement, which is very useful for people who spend a lot of time working with computers.

HandEnergy has the same current as when you charge devices from the socket. However, to charge the battery for HandEnergy, rotating takes a bit longer due to lower current from energy generation. Be.energy has even developed an app for this charger, which allows you to track the generation of energy you create and to share it with friends.

The future of dynamo machine chargers

As long as major corporations are not able to find an extensive solution to recharge their gadgets, such indie ideas would continue to develop and become more and more popular. Of course, it is hard imagine a world where people are constantly doing charging exercises, but this could be the perfect solution for some people who are looking for energy backup like travelers and nightlife fans. Moreover, augmented reality app developers could use the rotation idea or rotor generator technology to create a game that has no harm on your smartphone’s battery, but helps to charge it instead.
